The quintessential Oklahoma red dirt cowboy country superstar Garth Brooks has had it up to here with the hate. He makes some good points in the following piece.

And I wonder how the haters are processing this.
"Oh, he never was country..."
"He needs to shut up and sing..."
"He's just a dumb big deal."

While I may disagree with his perception of the President..

I like the rest of what he said. Our government is broken and the continuous pointing of fingers does nothing to solve it. Whether it is politicians or posters on a forum until we stop trying to say "it's all the (insert name of other party here)'s fault" I don't see any way things will get better. This country is diverse and the thoughts and concerns of any group cannot be ignored. When we stop seeing people as white, black, Hispanic, Asian, gay, straight, Christian, Muslim, Jewish, atheist, urban, rural, old, young, or anything other than Americans we will get nowhere. And participating in a forum that encourages such division is not something I care to do.

Have you been called a RINO here yet, blacked?

Because you're talking reasonably, and that doesn't tend to set well with some folks hereabouts.

See? It can be done. If only a few more posters would grow up, there might be more discussed than disgust.

vtex and etaoin, were was the leftwing condemnation of bush hate? or palin hate?

Here we go again.

Stop, con. You have problems -- we all get that. You've made it abundantly clear for a long time now. There's no need for you to continue to embarrass yourself. You got our attention. Try moving on to something new, perhaps doing something positive or helpful to another person. Something that isn't predicated on feebly attempting to build yourself up by being mean to people all day. Find your sweet side. It has to be there somewhere. Live happy.

Katrina Response Obama's Fault

...despite the fact that he wasn't in office for another 3.5 years. Sure, a small sampling, but they were all Louisiana Republicans.

Can someone explain this in any way but "damn, they sure make some dumb Republicans in Louisiana..."?

The Louisiana poll

is just so bad. The 'Stupid' hurts.

29% of the Republicans polled said Obama was more responsible for the poor federal response during Katrina. 28% said Bush. And 44%said they aren't sure who to blame.

Reminded me of cruise blaming the Great Bush Recession on Obama too.

Meanwhile, another so-dumb-it's-funny episode was Michigan Republican Rep. Kerry Bentivolio...who told a crowd that it would be a “dream come true” to submit articles of impeachment against President Obama. And he's been looking into it. “I went back to my office and I’ve had lawyers come in,” the congressman continued. “These are lawyers, PhDs in history, and I said, ‘Tell me how I can impeach the president of the United States.’”

Who says these guys are wasting the taxpayers time?? Apparently the experts had to explain to this dope that you actually have to have evidence. Damn.

My point is--I don't mind someone not agreeing with the blackedtape for instance...but when you have to just make crap up out of thin air (like others)?? Get over it.

Well, you gotta remember...

how successful the Clinton Impeachment went for the GOP!

Right, Former Speaker Gingrich?

And a few more points about PPP...

they were biased toward Republicans by +1.6 percentage points over the course of 71 polls conducted in the last 21 days of the 2012 elections.

PPP also tied with their PPP/Daily Kos joint polling as the most accurate polling firm of the 2012 election.
